Company Description


This regional chain of fast-casual restaurants was founded in Lincoln, Nebraska, in 1949 and is still headquartered there today. Siblings Sarah and Alex Brening opened the first Runza restaurant, beginning by serving only Runza sandwiches – a savory German pastry filled with beef and cabbage. Since franchising, Runza has expanded although the brand remains regional to Nebraska with select locations in Colorado, Missouri and Kansas.
